BLOUSE TYPE GARMENT Phoebe M. Brown, New York, N. Y.
Applicationtnecemberzlh 1950., Serial No. 203,249.
(Gil 2'--I0'6)1 Claims;
i-ng apparel. in the nature. of a. blouse. It is characterized. by a simplicity of design. and. ease and economy of manufacture.
Basically the garment comprises a single. section. of tubular fabric material. such. as a piece of tubular jersey. A com lete blouse type gar.- mentis made therefrom without. cutting. or making of scams, but with merelythehennnin ofv any raw edges. and theaddition of suitable fastener means such ashooks and eyes or buttons applied in appropriately selectedlocations.w
The resulting. garment is not only practical but. attractive and. may be fastenedand. arranged in different ways to provide a; variety of effects. The varied eifectsresult in partfrom the.- fact that-the garment. may be applied. onthe wearer in two generally different. fashions, i. e. either in the manner of. a jacket. or conversely by projecting the armsforwardly-through the arm holes provided. The invention accordingly comprises i an article of manufacture possessing. the features, properties, and the relation of elements which will. be exemplified in the article hereinafter described, and the scope of which invention will be indicated in the claims.
For a fuller understanding otthe-snature and, objects of the. invention reference should be had; to the following detailed description taken in connection. withthe accompanyin drawing,v in which:
Fig. l is a viewin perspective of a piece. of tubular material having initialoperations performed thereon to produce. the garmentoi. the. present invention;
Fig. 2 is a view in perspective of. the garment in a completed stage ready for use shown some whattilted and with the bottom edge infront elevated above the rear edge;
Fig. 3 is a bottom. plan..view of Figuretz with the structure of the latter l figure rotated. through an angle of 180;
Fig. 4 is afront view showing the garment applied to a person in accordance with'one type: of arrangement;
Fig. 5 is. a view of the same application taken generally'in. the rear;
Fig. 6 is a'view' similar toFig. 4 but with. the garment shaped and fastened a little differently from that of Fig. 4;
Fig. '7 is a front view of the garment applied by projecting, the arms forwardinto the appropriate. openings as distinguished fronr the jacket type of application. shown in Figs 4 to 6.;
Fig. 8 is a front view similar to Fig. 7 but with the garment arranged andfastened in a little different manner to produce;- a different efiect;
Fig, 9 is aview similar to Figs. 7 and 8 with the garment similarly applied but. with the fastening means separated to produce a still'different effect. from that of the other two figures;
Fig. 10 is a perspective view of a. modified form of. garment. havin certain shaping applied thereto; and.
Fig. 11 is a view of. the garment shown in Fig. 10 folded in a different direction and illustrate ing a convenient manner of producing the shape ing of the garment of Fig. 10.
As shown in Fig. l. the garment is composed essentially of a. section. it! of tubular fabric such as jersey cloth. which is soft and embodiesan appreciable degree of elasticity andis capable of being stretched into. suitable shapes in, the manner to be described hereinafter. In its normal relaxed condition the tube of material may be collapsed or pressed fiat into overlappin panels havingcommon side edges ii and. I2. .Tubular jersey clothis commonly available inv widths. of about. 26 or 27 inches, that is having a. circum ference of about 52 to 5% inches. and. is. thusof a size readily adaptable for thepurposes of the present. garment although. oi course it may be desirable to employ other sizes in particular cases dependent upon. the material. and circum stances;
A top hem i3 of. about 1 /2. inches. in width is formed and likewise a bottom hem M which. may benarrower as, for exam le /2 inch in width. The section may have a height of about /2 to yard, but again this dimension will vary depend.- ent upon various factors such as the character of the materiaL Suitable. means are provided for holding an upper flap portion [5 of one. panel in folded-over relation. and fastened to the other panel as shown in Fig. 2.. For this purpose the, outer face of the upper seam edge may be provided with decorative buttons Hi on one panel. and the other panel at a diametrically opposite areawith complementary button holes. I! and when the fastening means is engaged thereby definin arm. holes l8 and I9. A buttonty'pe fastening means is shownand described. as illustrative only and it will be understoodwthat various other type fastening means may be employed including. a
concealed type dependent upon the effect de-t sired. For purposes of further identification hereinafter, the panel or fabric layer bearing the buttons is designated by the numeral 20 and the opposite panel or layer by numeral. 2 L
The bottom. hem will also have. applied thereto releasable fastening means as indicated atlE and G and F and H. in Fig.2.. Additional fastening elements 25 maybe includedibe-tweenthe fastening elements F and. Hot similarlchar actervand likewise additional fasteners 26 may be inserted between the end fasteners E and G. As will appear hereinafter the hem area between F and H is adapted to be brought adjacent to the hem area E to G in a generally vertical line to form a vertical placket or closure of the garment. Accordingly the fastening means F to H will be complementary to those of E to G and one set may comprise hooks and the other eyes or they may be of the glove type or still other types of fastening means may be employed. As described, the fastener means are on the inside of the tubular garment and concealed but may be located in a manner such as to be exposed and if desired so that the edges overlap and in such case of a decorative type. As will be apparent later, the area 21 of the hem edge M between G and H becomes, upon application of the garment to the wearer, the neck or collar line and the area 28 between E and F becomes the waist line.
The ultimate appropriate fit of the garment will require that the fastening means be suitably positioned. With a garment of the dimensions heretofore described the fastener elements E and F may, for example, be located about 3 inches inwardly from the corresponding edge 12 and l I, that is the dimension 29 in Fig. 2 would be about 3% inches. The fasteners G and H may be located appropriately for the purpose inwardly about 8 inches from the respective edges I2 and II. It will be noted that the parts and fastening means are symmetrical with respect to a median plane passing through the line M in Fig. 2.
The garment may be put on and worn in two generally alternative manners. It will be first described when put on in the manner of a jacket. Fig. 3 is a bottom View of the garment, that is looking upwardly into the bottom opening of Fig. 2. The right arm is thrust up through the bottom opening of the tube and upwardly and out through the opening [9 in Fig. 2, and the left arm is similarly inserted through the bottom opening of the tube and upwardly and out the opening l8. The edges 30 and 3! are then brought together into a vertical arrangement and fastened in the front as shown in Fig. 4. The fastener elements .F and E are complementary and located at the waist. This brings the edge portion 28 around the waist as shown, and the neck portion 21 between the fastener elements H and G encircles'the neck as shown. The parts and shape in the rear would be substantially as shown in Fig. in which it will be noted that the flap i5 appropriately folds down over the top edge of the lower panel section 20.
The garment is adapted for fastening and wear ing in a manner to obtain various effects as will be appreciated. Fig. 6, for example, shows a variation in which the extreme top closure ele ments H and G are left unfastened to give a V- neck line and the material is drawn together in folds at the point 32 by suitable means such as a ribbon leaving the shoulder bare. The ribbon in this case is looped underthe material at the front and through the normal arm openings l8 and I8 and as the ribbon is drawn together and tied at the front, the material is drawn together as shown.
The garment, fitted as described in Figs. 4 to 6 is illustrative of the appearance and lines when the garment is applied in the fashion of a jacket. Alternatively the garment may be applied in the reverse fashion in which case, referring to Fig. 3, the right arm is thrust forward through the opening l8 and the left arm through opening IS in Fig. 3 and the garment wrapped around the body from the front to the rear. The edges 30 and 3| will be brought together as shown in Fig. 4, except in this case the vertical placket or closure will be at the back. Fig. 7 shows the appearance in the front and the parts of the garment may be identified by the reference characters showing the flap l5 and the buttons It with the flap again extending down from the top over the top edge of the lower panel section 2|]. The neck edge 21 again engages around the neck and likewise the waist edge 28 engages around the waist.
Fig. 8 shows the garment similarly applied but in this case the flap portion I5 is secured by the middle button IE only to provide a distinctive and novel effect. In Fig. 9 the flap I5 is entirely released from the lower section 20 to give the effect of a low-cut waist with a decorative neck scarf. v v V V l The garment thus far described has beenof substantially simple, plaintubular character. It will be appreciated that variations and refinements may be employed within the general principles which have been described and'illustrated as, for example, a certain amount of shaping of the basic tubular member may be effected. Figs. 10 and 11 show a modification of such character. The principal change in this regard is that the neck line or edge 27' between the fasteners H.
and G has been cut out on a curve to give a shaped neck fitting portionand likewise the waist line or edge 28 has been similarly cut out on a curved line to conform more exactly to the shape at the waist of the wearer. The shaping described and shown may be particularly desirable in the cases of some materials which are less elastic than others or are thicker and more bulky or comprise the larger sizes.
The shaping shown in the garment of Fig. 10 may be conveniently efiected by folding the garment down flat on a diameter arranged at right angles to the diameter upon which the garment is compressed in Fig. 10 whereby the edges 'II and ii. of Fig. 10 will'be located asshown in Fig. 11. A single cut on a curved line through the two thicknesses may then be made to produce the waist line 28 and likewise a similar cut through the two thicknesses will produce the neck line 21',
Since certain changes may be made in the above article and different embodiment of the invention could be made without departing from the scope thereof, it is intended that all matter contained in the above description or shown in the accompanying drawing shall be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
